--Vegan sneaker brand will plant 365 trees per year, in addition to existing Trees for Shoes Campaign--

For Immediate Release, 7th April 2020 – Milanese sustainable sneaker brand YATAY will plant 365 trees in their Kenyan forest, in recognition of Earth Day, on 22nd April 2020. The brand will go on to plant a further 365 trees every year. This will be in addition to their Trees for Shoes campaign, whereby one tree is planted for every pair of sneakers sold.

“During this difficult time, Earth Day seems a more poignant moment in the calendar than ever and our impact on the planet has never been clearer, the lack of human activity has allowed our dear planet a moment to breath. When things do slowly return to normal, we hope that a more conscious human race will emerge, one that considers their environmental impact on a daily basis. Our pledge to plant 365 trees a year represents this hope, a hope for a world where every day is Earth Day.”

Umberto de Marco, Founder
